Manxmouse: The Mouse Who Knew No Fear arrives at NYU Skirball after being selected by leaders in the field of theater for young audiences as the Winner of the 2014 International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) Victor Award.
“A funny, very imaginative book...manages the fine line between magic and reality so skilfully, to the point where the most fantastic events feel plausible.”J.K. Rowling
Adapted from the cherished children's novel by Paul Gallico—a favorite for many, including J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter), Manxmouse is truly a one-of-a-kind show and one of the ultimate uses of imagination through storytelling.
Instead of grey fur, his is bright blue. Instead of tiny mouse ears, his are large rabbit-like ears. On top of it all, Manxmouse is without a tail. Some may say he’s the strangest mouse they’ve ever seen, but Manxmouse doesn’t mind being different.
Setting out on an exciting adventure, braving tigers, fearsome foxes, soaring hawks and dastardly pet-shop owners, eventually, manxmouse meets someone who has been waiting for him all along… the manx cat.
From renowned Dutch children’s company, Theatergroep Kwatta, this epic tale of a tiny hero is full of lively characters, inventive theatrical feats, and important lessons about what hope can accomplish when coupled with bravery. Don't miss this global hit, an unforgettable adventurous form of theater utilizing everyday objects to captivate the hearts and minds of children of all ages.
